Another Tom Clancy Franchise – EndWar

I know, I know, Ubisoft are creating yet another franchise using the successful Tom Clancy brand. But this isn’t in a direction anywhere near what they’ve ventured before. Whilst before we’ve had the Splinter Cells, Rainbow Sixes, and the Ghost Recons, involving no more than a tight knit squad at most, now you’re going to be waging an entire war against an opponent. Dubbed as ‘the first 100 percent next generation Tom Clancy game’, details of the game remain to be seen. Color me excited, I’ve loved every Tom Clancy game so far, so why not add another? You know, if it ain’t broken and all that jazz…

EndWar

Read on for the rather lengthy press release.


Today Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announced that it is creating Tom Clancy’s EndWarTM, a new brand in the Tom Clancy series of video games. Led by strategy veteran and Ubisoft creative director Michael de Plater, Tom Clancy’s EndWar(TM) is being developed by a world-class team at Ubisoft’s Shanghai studio whose members have experience developing Ubisoft’s hit franchises including Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon®, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell®. Tom Clancy’s EndWar(TM) is scheduled for release on next-generation consoles in fiscal year 2007/2008.

Set on the battlefields of World War III, Tom Clancy’s EndWar will push the envelope of technology, showcasing artificial intelligence, graphics, physics
and animations that were not possible prior to the launch of the new hardware systems. Tom Clancy’s EndWar has been built from the ground up as a
revolutionary war strategy game solely for next-generation consoles.

“Our development teams are invigorated to be creating the first 100 percent next-generation Tom Clancy brand,” said Serge Hascoët, chief creative officer at Ubisoft. “Our success with Tom Clancy franchises is unparalleled in the next-generation and Tom Clancy’s EndWar will be a marvelous addition to the already critically acclaimed library of games. A strategy game like no other, EndWar will allow gamers to lead their own armies against hundreds of others online in real global locations on the massive battlefields of World War III.”
